Checking in!

Well, my "resolution" of doing at least 1 post per week is out the window and it's only March. Oh well, I'll start over again this week. Promise!

Since I last post, I've done another "how-to" presentation for my MeetUp group. It went pretty well and I am working on thinking of another topic to present on. I am a big believer that you learn by teaching others, so I'm anxious to continue.

I have a shoot planned for Sunday and may even get to break away on Saturday and go off and shoot on my own. Wouldn't that be exciting?

I have several photog-related events coming up in April. Until then, it's pretty much status-quo.

If you know me personally, you also know we've been searching and searching for a home to call our own. We've made several offers, but none of them stuck. I mean, how could they when the offer counts are in the teens & twenties for every house we've bid on?

We are signing another offer tonight and maybe, just maybe, this will be the one. I really need a place to store my ever-growing collection of props and other photo equipment :)

So, I'm still around but I'm doing a little less shooting than I have in recent months. Ta ta until about mid-week :)

1+1=3: Amber & Kriz

I was recently afforded the pleasure of shooting a maternity session for Amber & Kriz.  Titus is expected to make his debut in early April, 2013 and I can't wait to meet the little guy.

These two were a real hoot to hang out with.  Their fun-loving attitudes will no doubt lead them to be superb parents.

I would like to add that Amber didn't use the stairs to get to the top of that slide, she climbed up it - 35 weeks pregnant. You go, girl!

Amber and Kriz LOVE their books, so it was no surprise we needed to capture them in their natural habitat - the library they've built in their home.

The doggies love the library, too!

Amber was absolutely glowing, and Kriz was beaming right back at his bride.  There is so much love between the two of them.

I was so blessed to spend a couple of afternoons capturing moments with Amber and Kriz. Their warm, original personalities really made for a fun and honest shoot that I will remember for always.
